Stills situation: Wide receiver Kenny Stills was listed on the injury report all week and did only limited work, but Gase said he should be good to go against the Saints.

Something that has plagued Cutler throughout his career has been inconsistency.

After a solid Miami debut, Cutler struggled in New Jersey a week ago. He missed many open throws and was throwing off his back foot. The more opportunities Miami gets with the ball, the likelier this becomes a shootout and New Orleans does not want that. Brees ranks 5th in the league with a 109.7 QBR and boasts a 68.5 completion percentage. They reversed what had been nagging problems, the excessive passing-to-rushing yards imbalance and a lack of forced turnovers, both in impressive fashion.

Saints vs Dolphins is live on BBC 2 in the UK. They now average 24.3 points and 385.7 yards per game. The Dolphins were 30th against the run on the season.

They should - but only if they followed the blueprint crafted by experts inside the organization, including Wayne Diesel, who is the team's director of sports performance. CB Marshon Lattimore participated fully in practice Wednesday after missing last week's game because of a concussion.

It has been a odd three weeks for Dolphin linebacker Lawrence Timmons. Drew Brees, with his running backs and weapons, should be able to move the ball consistently against Miami's defense. Timmons has pass defending skills that Miami needs. Though this is technically their home game, they haven't played in their home stadium all season and won't until October 8th.

"To be a good team, you have to play to your standard regardless of who you're facing or the circumstances you're in", tight end Marcedes Lewis said. He is also the highest graded linebacker with a 78.4 Pro Football Focus (PFF).

FAST FACTS: QB Drew Brees has 867 pass yards (289 per game), 6 TDs and no interceptions for a 109.7 rating in past three games. If Byron Maxwell, Xavier Howard, Bobby McCain or Alterraun Verner allow even a small window in coverage, Brees has the precision to nail them.

Streif, who was active for the game despite missing most of the week's practice with a knee problem, picked up the injury when a Dolphins defender fell on his legs.

It is hard to predict this game.

There's a deep well of frustration bubbling up here, and it reminds me of how Gase based his choice of Miami as a head coaching destination on the presence of Ryan Tannehill.

STARK CONTRAST: The game will help to determine whether the effectiveness of New Orleans' defense against Carolina was an anomaly or, as the Saints hope, evidence of a unit coalescing after a rough start.
